Their commitment to publishing and producing great books and resources for teachers is truly remarkable, and it’s an honor to partner with them to support great content for the amazing teachers who listen to Teach Me, Teacher. <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> As mentioned in the episode, <a href="https://www.stenhouse.com/content/practicing-presence">Practicing Presence</a> is filled with ideas, exercises, checklists, personal anecdotes, and practices you can use to reframe and establish a mindset that will enhance your focus and engagement in the classroom. <br> <br> <br> <br> When teachers care for themselves deeply and deliberately, they are better able to care for the people that matter most in their lives—their students, friends, and families. Practicing Presence focuses not on doing, but rather on being present in the life of the classroom. <br> <br> <br> <br> Each chapter includes self-care strategies to explore how to self-regulate, nurture self-acceptance, and promote compassion. This book will give readers the feeling of having a personal coach who provides suggestions and routines so that they not only can deal with being overwhelmed, but rise above it.  <br> <br> <br> <br> <a href="https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1625311915/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=1625311915&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=teachmeteache-20&amp;linkId=e1a3b051788c8a3664dc251c424ae172">Get the book now! </a><br>
